Sevenhill Fine Old Tawny is made from the fruit of old Grenache, Touriga and Shiraz vines. The yield from each vine is very low as a result of pruning to achieve minimal bunches of concentrated flavour.
Each variety is managed separately and fortifying spirit is added to arrest the fermentation and keep the natural grape sugars (glucose and fructose) in the wine. Each year, the winemaker creates a blend from young and old wines that have been kept in large oak barrels.
Tawny, reddish brown in colour, with spicy raisin fruit aromas underpinned by clean aged characters of roasted nuts. The palate is rich and mouth-filling, initially with flavours of red fruits, smoke and old wood. The palate is long with a satisfying dryness to the finish.
